If you look at the Dell XPS range and the XPS 730 Desktop Gaming PC in particular, both in terms of appearance and specifications you might wonder who would be the target market.
Given that these kind of machines are pre-built high-end gaming systems — I’m guessing that these customers must be the teenagers/students grown up and working (on decent salaries) who now have less time for assembling and tinkering with their computers and just want to get on with top-end gaming. These computers now typically come with custom cases, LEDs, water cooling and are already overclocked, plus have the ability to be easily overclocked further — sometimes even using a windows interface to do so.
I recently had the opportunity to attend a Dell media preview event which was held in Central London that was focussed on PC gaming, both from the point of view of system builders, component manufacturers and professional gamers.
